Continuous casting plant

The MPG Mendener Präzisionsrohr GmbH manufactures copper pipes for different heat technology application areas. The casting cylinder used in the continuous casting plant was to be operated with a pre-set speed independent of the load.  To do so the plunger cylinder had to be converted into a differential cylinder.

In accordance with a conversion drawing produced by the development department the cylinder was totally rebuilt with new piping. Here, Montanhydraulik Reparatur und Service manufactured both the cylinder pipe and the cylinder piston new, based on their own construction drafts. Pressure oil is fed to the floor area via two pipes made from stainless steel.

Continuous casting cylinder:

  • piston diameter: 480 mm
  • rod diameter: 400 mm
  • stroke: 5,500 mm
